We're delighted to introduce two new India Tours to our growing collection, providing even more choice for an experiential add-on to a Goa holiday.

Both our new tours offer game drives in Ranthambore’s National Park, the largest reserve in northern India, where the highest number of protected Bengal tigers reside. The tigers live alongside a number of other animals, including hyenas, leopards, sambar deer, chital, mongoose and over 240 species of bird.
